Egg Free Buttercream Cookie Icing

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by foodtvfan

An easy to make egg-free frosting that works great for decorating cookies for holidays, birthdays and parties. You can make half the recipe if you like. When you need to add coloring to icing, use color paste. If you use liquid coloring, you may need to add more icing sugar. Add a little cocoa for chocolate cookie icing.
